Charles Rangel, Purveyor of High Taxes, AKA, Tax Cheat!
By: John Lillpop
In October of 2007, Rep. Charles Rangel, (D-N.Y.), shocked the civilized world with a proposal so extreme that it was dubbed the “Mother of All Tax Hikes” by reasonable folks (Republicans) in the U.S. House.
At the time, it was unclear why the rotund Rangel, head of the House tax-writing committee, would propose something so draconian.
Was this raspy-voiced bundle of liberal tomfoolery that out-of-touch about the devastating effect that over taxation can have on a family budget and the national economy?
As it turns out, Rangel was not concerned because he has been a tax cheat for 20 years! Higher taxes mean nothing if you do not pay them.
Example: Visit a local car wash and ask one of the illegal aliens trolling for loose change his opinion about higher taxes. Without exception, the respondent will shrug his shoulders and express his complete apathy, in Spanish.
You see, illegal aliens do not pay taxes, but they steal public services paid for by people who do. If anything, higher taxes mean a bigger pool of dinero from which illegals can steal.
Charles Rangel’s case is much the same.
Except that the powerful lawbreaker has been caught with his chubby fingers stuck in the cookie jar, and now owes the IRS as much as $10,000 in unpaid taxes, penalties and fines.
According to the likable Rangel, he has gone 20 years without knowing the details of his beach property in the Dominican Republic.
Here we have the man responsible for writing the tax code for an entire nation, yet when it comes to his own taxes, questions like “How much rent was collected?” and “How much rent should be reported as income?” are beyond his ability to answer.
Rather than sorting through the tax code and filing an honest return like any normal American, Rangel chose to ignore the traditional admonition, which holds that “cheaters never prosper.” Instead, he did both for 20 years.
In a real grasp at straws even for a hypocritical liberal, Rangel blamed the confusion in part on language and cultural barriers with the operators of the resort.
There you go! Another fundamental reason why English Only MUST be made the law of the land in America, the Dominican Republic, Mexico, and other locations where tax-adverse liberals have investments.
Still, it is best for America that this Rangel thug has not been sent to prison.
After all, the cost to feed the behemoth leftist might lead to even higher taxes, and that would make Rangel deliriously happy!
